John Ruddy Jr grew up just outside Amarillo, where his dad had a small cattlehold and his mother took care of 5 kids.
John Ruddy Jr went to school in Amarillo for 2 years, but because of the cost of sending som many kids to school his parents took him out of school early to try to make a farmerson out of the oldest boy.
John Ruddy jr, was not much into physical work, he saw how his dad was worn down by all the heavy work with farm upkeep and cattle tackling. John ruddy jr, figured there were easier ways to make a living so he left his family promising his parents that he will return one day, a rich man, who will make sure that his siblings will be able to go to school and his parents can ease of a bit on the hard work.
And therefore he has left the wellknown surroundings of Amarillo, to seek his luck amongst gamblers, hustlers and other fortuneseekers.
Quick earning was not something they taught in school, but John Ruddy jr had a natural understanding of cards and going under the radar. So he made himself a few coins from other pupils and found it much more enlightening to make money in a stool than from the hard work on the farm.
He also have a thing for pocket lifting but he is very careful with that as he was once very close to get caught and only pure luck kept him from jail or things worse than jail.
By now he makes a living at the local locksmith where he learns the trade of how to create locks, but also how to dismantle locks. He works for money and the locksmith Paddy Burns sees him as a very bright student, John Ruddy jr is way more interested in the later part but keeps up appearences to learn the dark side of locksmithing on his own, when noone is looking over his shoulders.
Born 23 years ago to a French photographer and a an Irish schoolteacher. Bluford always wanted to work with words and early on fell in love with dime westerns. His mother insisted upon Bluford learning a trade and so with a little help from his father he got an apprenticeship with the local newspaper. Bluford quickly learned the tricks of the trade, he had an uncanny ability to write compelling articles. No matter how boring the topic, Bluford always angled the story so that the public loved it, always exposing the injustices of society. That must be where Bluford's nickname “The Wasp” originated.
His physique being unintimidating, Bluford instead opted to use stealth and cunning in his exploits, thus honing his gambling skills and of course trained his hand in the art of shooting his pistol.
The love of the dime westerns persisted, and Bluford tried his hand at writing some. Unsuccessfully so.
Bluford thus decides that what he lacked was hands on experience, Hence Bluford travelled west.
